Re: [Flashcoders] Chipmunk-sounding MP3s?

2006-06-24 Thread Matt Mc
Hello,
   
  I had the same problem this helped clear things up.
   
  http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?thread=High_Speed_Play
   
  you have to use a sample rate of 44100Hz, I've used 22050Hz with no problems, 
along with a constant bit rate (CBR) and that will take care of the chipmunks 
problem.
   
  Perhaps you are using a variable bitrate on compression.
   
  Hope this helps.

 play fine in QuickTime Player, but when loaded into Flash (via the
 Sound object) play back at super-speed and pitched up.

 I was told at some point that Flash can only handle certain encodings
 and bitrates of MP3s, but 16k/mono is one of the options for
 exporting, so I would expect that it would be able to handle loading
 them as well. Is there a list of what bitrates are supported
 somewhere? Google isn't giving me any love.

[Flashcoders] Mask over XML Text Flash 8

2006-06-22 Thread Matt Mc
Hello All,
   
  Can someone point me to a tutorial regarding masking XML in flash8
   
  I am trying to make it look like the text box is closing. But when using 
masks the xml does not draw at all.
   
  I have looked at many great tutorials regarding masking in 8 using embeded 
text and so on. Still not solving the problem.
   
  If you can point me in the right direction I would be stoked
   
  Thanks for the help 
   
  Matt

Hello I am a Noob,

I have a noobie question that cannot be answered on the noob list. I know it is 
a noob question because I have been told on this list that it is.

But even though I have tried all suggestions I still can not get an mp3 player 
to get it's xml list through a Flashvar in the embed tag.

Please use your Action Script Super Powers to help me solve this problem. You 
will save my life, and I will love you for ever.

I have a deal The first one who can help me fix this problem will forever in my 
eyes be known as the Champion of the 2006 International Flash Coders Content 
Degrading Debate.

I have the files all neatly bundled up in a zip file. I have a readme 
describing my problem I have checked all my links (twice) to make sure they all 
work.
send me an email [EMAIL PROTECTED] and I will send you the files if you think 
you are a real ninja.

Help Guru's!!!

Re: [Flashcoders] Flash coders content degrading

2006-06-13 Thread Matt Mc
Not to worry Mark others were helpful. No need to commit yourself.LOL 

GIve me a link to a better forum for my question if you have one. 

When I parsed out the info it was hard to get an answer. So I spent some time 
to make a neat package so if someone did want to help I could send it and it 
would be as clean as possible. 

Sorry if I still don't meet your standards of list behavior. 

Bottom line is if someone gets stuck they are going to find help where they 
can. To tell you the truth I would post just about any place to be able to get 
an answer just so I can go to sleep one night this week. 

Some of us are not action scripting for fun. We are working in the real world, 
I am a designer I am learning flash and can make my way around the flash design 
environment just fine.  

If I knew enough about action scripting not to need help (noob) than I wouldn't 
really need this list now would I. 

Also if the Noob list wasn't so Noob I could get my problem solved their 
without getting spurned by an elitist.

The truth about this board is that most people are helpfull and those are the 
people that I have come in contact with. Well untill Mark made his post.

Have a Nice Day Mark.

 Perfect example of what we are talking about:

While we're at it, a general piece of advice:

send me an email [EMAIL PROTECTED] and I will send you the
files if you think you are a real ninja.

The first part looks pretty good, with a readme and everything zipped
neatly together. Bonus points for comments in the code, traces where
they could be helpful with extra comments what they trace. Where it
goes wrong is when it gets to the emailing part -- I don't know how
others feel about this, but for me the threshold is /much/ higher than
simply downloading a linked zip.
The reason for this is that I would feel like I would be making a
commitment, before even knowing what I was getting myself into. Been
there, done that -- what I got was the most horrible code I had ever
seen, ripped somewhere off the web with variable names in a language
neither me nor the help-seeker could understand, _root and on(
clipEvent ) all over it. After a while I figured it was easier to
rewrite it, which took me only half an hour but didn't save me from
dozens of follow up questions, some of which I had already answered,
others were unrelated, and the rest he answered himself only minutes
after sending.
So, just post a link. If somebody wants to help s/he will look at it
and let you know if there is a solution. A link also means I can look
into it when I come across it and have a few minutes to spare, instead
of waiting for a reply that might come the next day when I don't have
the time.

Since I'm already ranting about off-list issues, some other things I
have encountered in the past:
Please, if you seek help, don't take threads off-list unless asked.
Somebody suggesting something here most likely doesn't want to be your
personal help desk from then on, not by mail, and definitely not via
IM (even if we have the same mother-tongue that doesn't mean you're my
new best friend, it's really not that an uncommon language, thank
you). Keep it on the list. Others will read it, too, and might be able
to help better or quicker, plus if somebody actually bothers to search
the archives it will show up. It's a win-win for everybody involved.

I am sure some people post every question they have with out doing research.  I 
looked everywhere including the origional authors website. Common Creative 
licence I used this list as an absolute last resort. 

PS. a programmer at work helped me with the problem and we have it solved. But 
for the last week it has fallen on me to make it happen. Under pressure you 
look for the help you can thats why we have a list like this right! So we can 
learn more and get better at what we do.

way. Thanks for setting me straight. 

It is great that you all are willing to let people know how things work. I will 
do my best to be a better part of this list. I think resources like this are 
the best.

Thanks people keep up the good work.

RE: [Flashcoders] Help loading xml in html embed tag

2006-06-12 Thread Matt Mc
All the resources I get tell me how to put a flashvar into an embed tag but not 
the syntax for bringing the variable into my Action Script Document.

I have been working on this for almost a week now and I know it is simple 
because everyone keeps telling me so.

If I can't get this I am dead.

here is my embed tag:
object classid=clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-44455354 
codebase=http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0;
 width=300 height=46 id=NoxPlayer align=middle
param name=allowScriptAccess value=sameDomain /
param name=movie value=NoxPlayer.swf /
param name=FlashVars value=xmlURL=playlist.xml
param name=quality value=high /
param name=wmode value=transparent /
param name=devicefont value=true /
param name=bgcolor value=#00 /
embed src=NoxPlayer.swf FlashVars=xmlURL=playlist.xml quality=high 
wmode=transparent devicefont=true bgcolor=#00 width=300 height=46 
name=NoxPlayer align=middle allowScriptAccess=sameDomain 
type=application/x-shockwave-flash 
pluginspage=http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer; /
/object


here is how they get the xml document now.

private var playlistURL:String = playlist.xml;
private var playlistObj:jwPlaylist;
private var playlistArray:Array;

How do I make this get the playlist.xml link from the embed tag.

I can't seem to get the syntax right or something because I can't get this to 
work.

If anyone can give me a detaild response or steer me to a tutorial that will 
show me the syntax to use in the action script document. Not the first frame of 
the FLA

Thanks

If you want to look at the files let me know I will post them. It is an mp3 
player but my boss wants to add the xml with dynamic links

elibol [EMAIL PROTECTED] 

I really appreciate you guys helping. For some reason it is still not working. 
I am going to load a zip file of the project. I just need this playlist to be 
dynamic to make my boss happy before I get canned. he knows I am not an 
actionscripter but he seems to think this is easy.

Perhaps it has something to do with the way the files are set up. It works just 
fine untill I try to load a variable. I know it is their because I tested it in 
a text box. 

If anyone can help That would be great. I have a feeling I will be up all night 
again.

Re: [Flashcoders] Help loading xml in html embed tag

2006-06-12 Thread Matt Mc
Right now the file is relative to the swf. The problem is i need it to link to 
files that may not be relative. The actuall xml doc will be on a completely 
difference server.

So The MP3 player which is now relative to the files needs to accept the 
Flashvar so it does not need to be relative.

I have made sure the links are correct that is not the problem. Also the SWF 
accepts the Flashvar so this is not the problem.

It is getting this to work. (Or it may be something else in the document that I 
have completely overlooked. My day is almost done and I have read every 
tutorial I can find and still have made no headway. I feel like pulling my hair 
out.LOL

private var playlistURL:String = _root.xmlURL;
